Garanimals!! (Welcome to stop one on OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party)

     I am so very excited that my blog, such as it is, is included in this card making party.  This is the first stop, and thanks for stopping. (My first blog hop!!)

     My challenge for this hop is called Garanimals!!; to be completely honest, though, that would be the name Sandy gave it. ~ I can't steal the credit.  So, how easy and fun is this for the first stop??

1.  The card must be for a child... no special occasion, just has to be for a kid
2.  The card must have an animal on it.   As you can see by my cards I have included fish, Winnie the Pooh, and turtles, so even butterflies or birds would be ok.

This is the first time I've posted a card anywhere, so big huge step for me here.  I had fun with this, hope some are not too "sneezy" looking?   Oh, and don't look for a list of supplies, I have a room full of stuff and by the time I'm done, most everything gets pulled out until I am not sure what I used and what I didn't.

Here is what I tried.  1 using stamps, 1 using embossing folder, 1 using Cricut, mix in a little cotton fluff, glossy accents and bling, and there you have it!  3 kids cards..with animals!

OK, I just found out how difficult it is to photograph and add pictures of cards!  The colors are much brighter, and the cards much cuter then they look here, they really are.   Oh, well, I will really have to work on this.  Anyone who can point me to where I can learn more, please do!

Blog Candy Alert: in honor of this being my first event, and my first posted cards, and all, I was thinking I should really give a little candy, yes?  How about this, leave a comment, (follow if you want..but only if you want!) and Monday at 6pm I will pick a random comment out of the hat and ... drumroll..... send you a little package of goodies that will include some stamps, some ribbon and some other goodies that I come up with.

Sound good?  Leave a way for me to reach you for sure!

Y'all come back now, ya hear?


Thank you all for your comments, I really am so thankful for your response to my challenge..
I am working on getting back to everyone kind enough to leave a comment.  We live in an area
greatly affected by the World Trade Center attack ten years ago, and are spending Sunday 
in observance.
